Against Abha, Al Nassr came back from a goal deficit to win the game. Late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Anderson Talisca were enough to seal the win for Rudi Garcia and his team.
However, fans are praising Rudi Garcia’s move to integrate Ronaldo and Talisca into the lineup, the impact of the win on Al Nassr’s chances of winning the Saudi Professional League, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s surprising move to not take the winning penalty in the latter stages of the game, but this article will focus on why Ronaldo’s freekick goal against Abha suggests why he still has a lot to offer.
1. He Scored A Crucial Long Range Freekick.
Note that it was Ronaldo’s 78th-minute long-range Freekick that turned the tie around. The 38-year-old Al Nassr captain, who has been under many criticisms for not scoring freekick in recent years, proved his doubters wrong.
He beat the Abha goalkeeper with a very precise shot. This goal simply confirms that Ronaldo can simply not be written off even though he’s now older. The free-kick goal also confirms that the 38-year-old forward still has it in him and still has a lot to offer.
